Ashwini Nachappa alleges debit card misuse

Former athlete Ashwini Nachappa on Tuesday lodged a complaint with the Jayanagar police that some unidentified miscreants had lifted a debit card from her bag and misused it. 

Nachappa was the chief guest at an inter-school sports meet organised by Foundation for Action, Motivation and Empowerment at Kittur Rani Chennamma Kreedangana on Tuesday. 

She has alleged that some miscreants have lifted the debit card from her bag and she later found that they have withdrawn Rs 1.7 lakh from the account. The Jayanagar police have registered a case and are investigating. A senior police officer of the Jayanagar police said the money was drawn from a Karnataka Bank ATM kiosk in Jayanagar 4th Block between 9:30 am and 10 am. 

The officer said they have requested the bank officials to provide the CCTV footage. When asked how the miscreants could have access to the ATM PIN number, the official said that they were investigating. The athlete’s card has a maximum withdrawal limit of Rs 2 lakh per day. 

When contacted, Nachappa refused to comment on the matter. She said a complaint has been lodged with the police and they were looking into it. Nachappa also did not wish to speak to the media on the issue.
